Hand Tracking and Affine Shape-Appearance Handshape Sub-units in Continuous Sign Language Recognition

We propose and investigate a framework that utilizes novel aspects concerning probabilistic and morphological visual processing for the segmentation, tracking and handshape modeling of the hands, which is used as front-end for sign language video analysis. Our ultimate goal is to explore the automatic Handshape Sub-Unit (HSU) construction and moreover the… (More)
